Register for Generosity

Many couples these days are getting married after they have already lived on their own for some time. That means, often times couples do not need to register for dishes, pots and pans, flatware or other household items at the time of their wedding. Yet, wedding guests still want to give a gift to the bride and groom. The I Do Foundation offers a solution. Couples can choose from a variety of charitable organizations, start a registry, and encourage wedding guests to make a donation in lieu of a wedding present. Using their simple system, your guests can make secure online donations in support of the organization of your choice. After you create a Charity Registry, you can make your registry immediately available to your guests through your personal wedding website. When guests visit your wedding website to learn more about your celebration, they can also access your Charity Registry to make their tax-deductible gift directly online.

Black & White Takes the Cake

Simplicity is never understated. This may sound like a contradiction, but when it comes to color palettes for your wedding day decor and design, simplicity is often the most dramatic. Lately, we've noticed a common trend of brides choosing a very simplistic color palette but utilizing very dramatic shapes, textures and angles to create a dramatic effect. Today we'd like to show you some examples of truly amazing cakes that certainly draw attention, but only feature black, white and silver in the color palette.


Our first samples come from celebrity cake designer Ron Ben-Israel as featured in InStyle Weddings. Note in the cake to the left the alternation of round versus square designs with ornate design features also alternating in black and silver against a white backdrop. The cake to the left uses a narrow height to draw attention to the dramatic monogram detail at the top.


Patterned elements brought into cake designs using a black and white palette creates a striking effect. The cake to the left by Martine's Pastries, was inspired by the print on an Indian shawl.


There is nothing plain about this all-white cake by Carlos Bakery. Baker, Buddy Valastro uses texture and pattern to create a fully glamorous cake.


Here is another example of an all-white cake that uses patterns to create a dapper and sophisticated cake design. This cake by Cheryl Kleinman Cakes gained inspiration from a crisp tuxedo shirt.


Our last example comes from cake designer, Michelle Bommarito of Michelle Bommarito Cakes. Michelle gained inspiration from a lavish ball gown and translated the ornate black scroll pattern onto the backdrop of a fondant white cake.
